Obama To Give Major Speeche On Jobs Program

AP)  WASHINGTON — Seeking a jolt for the economy, President Barack Obama
will lay out new ideas for speeding up job growth and helping the
struggling poor and middle class in a major speech in early September, a
senior administration official told The Associated Press.

president's plan is likely to contain tax cuts, jobs-boosting
infrastructure ideas and steps that would specifically help the
long-term unemployed. The official emphasized that all of Obama's
proposals would be fresh ones, not a rehash of plans he has pitched for
many weeks and still supports, including his "infrastructure bank" idea
to finance construction jobs.
